this has been a prob for some people and idk why...they have been able to fix it by unjoining and rejoining the community. for some reason, when they joined they didn't get posting access automatically like everyone else did. that should work!

Hi! Hi!

I have a suggestion: could we maybe have a daily macro post? I love macros as much as the next person (maybe even more), but I think it would maybe make the comm run a bit smoother?

Just thought I'd pitch this to you.

Thanks and keep up the good work. <3

We'll discuss it -- there's a delicate balance between not enough consolidation of posts and too much, and we're looking to see how the weekly posts work out. Thanks for the suggestion.

This may be an out of bounds question ...

I've been making shirts for some of the ontd_startrek meet ups in a roundabout way and I wanted to know if it would be against the rules to post about the actual selling of the shirts in the community. I obviously don't want to turn it into a market place or anything I just wanted to have something that was convenient for people to see.

Certainly not an out of bounds question :)

My first inclination is to say no to the post, though, on "slippery slope" grounds -- lots of folks in the community sell stuff on ebay or etsy, and we don't want it to turn into one "for sale" post after another. Stuff that's specific to ontd_startrek, though, might be an exception. I'll talk to the other mods and get back to you.


Just a quick question, a few days ago I tried to post about ppl writing to the actors/ question about autographs but apparently it wasn't approved because I haven't seen it on here. So I guess I just want to know why, did I format it wrong/ was it the subject matter? Thanks.

when you submit a post to a moderated community you will get an automated email from LJ one way or another; if it's approved the email will say it was approved, if it was rejected it will say so and contain a note the mod entered with why. posts are generally addressed within an hour so you would have gotten the email soon after submitting the post, i would check your email.

I know we have the friending meme post, but when I looked at it, twitter names weren't originally part of the meme - do we have a post for that and I've missed it? My apologies if that's the case and I'm asking something that's been asked a million times over :)

if not, would it be ok to start a thread just for twitter names and maybe link it to the friending meme? I didn't want to submit something like this without checking first :)

would you like to start a new friending meme and just include twitter info as one of the fields? the last one is old-ish and if you start a new one i'd approve it. let me know if you'd like to do it!

I don't *mean* to be stupid, but apparently I am

I got a rejection note just now that says:

"Here are the reasons for the rejection as provided by the moderator:

this has already been posted."

I don't see it on the Thursday graphics post, and I don't see it in any recent posts. Can you tell me where it's been posted?

It also says:

-no links to outside LJ content are allowed

and then:

-the !thursday post has already been set up today, you can post this again if you'd like in the master post, duplicates are okay there

If I can't link to outside LJ content, how can I post it in the master graphics post?

Re: I don&#39;t *mean* to be stupid, but apparently I am

idk when exactly it had been posted, I know I had seen it before. If you can't find it and the creator

All the master posts say specifically in their text that you are allowed to link to your personal LJs for content in their comments. However, posts to the community are subject to the regular rules.

Also, to continue my stupidity:

There are posts on the comm that link to outside LJ posts (this one and this one, for example) even though the rules say not to. I am confused.

Re: Also, to continue my stupidity:

yes, because as it states in every single master post, links to outside content and allowed and encouraged. We put those there because they are the exception to the rule :)

Re: ZQ and the Mr Twitter competition

we have the rule specifically in place because at any given point in time there are hundreds of polls involving ST out there and our efforts are to make ontd_st content-rich vs a site that outlinks to a bunch of stuff with varying importance and relevance. it's in the rules and i just made a post about it yesterday so we do plan on enforcing it. hope i have explained it well enough so you understand why we made it a rule :)

Friday fanfic/art post?

Hi, is there going to be a weekly post for fanfic/fanart etc? Cos there isn't one for this Friday and in my timezone it isn't Friday anymore.

Re: Friday fanfic/art post?

I just posted it. FWIW we operate mostly on Eastern (US) time.

I was just wondering if it would be okay to pimp a ontdst_capslock comm. Thanks!

Hmmmmmm. Although we generally discourage it (for fear of a billion "LOOK AT MY COOL COMM OMG XPOSTED EVERYWHERE" posts), I think a pimp thread might be in order. Could you put it together as something along the lines of "Hey, ontdst_capslock is awesome, what other comms are awesome? post them here!"?

I'm trying to recruit comm members to join (and donate to) the ONTD_StarTrek walk team for the AIDS Walk LA. Am I allowed to post an entry for this, or am I only allowed to post the info in the monday meetup posts? Thank you!

How about a top-level post telling everyone about it and such and then you can post reminders in the meetup post each week?

I do hope this is allowed here, cause I'd hate to sound like a moron, lol. But how would I go about requesting affiliation with ontd_st?

I assume you mean you want your comm listed under "affiliates" on the profile page? This is the place to ask :)

Hey I've been meaning to ask if you would to affiliate with zsaladana_daily. I notice that we have a quite a few fans of her in this comm, but no one really knows about it, so as a general post, could there be a pimping community post related to everything star trek?

I think I set up an affiliate post a while back, I have to find it. Otherwise I think we'll just have people request to be affiliates there and we'll link to you in the userinfo rather than a recurring post.

that sounds good, how about posting it this afternoon?
